  • Tulip Soft Paint
  • Stencil
  • Tulip Stencil Spray
  • Foam Roller or Foam brush


  • If you want to stencil your fabric first decide where you want the stencil to be. Then spray the back of your stencil with stencil stray and stick it on your fabric. The stuff is like magic, seriously it makes stenciling so so easy and it doesn’t leave residue on the fabric. I only had to spray it once and I was able to re-position it on all the different fabric pieces i used it on. The flower one I used 6 times!
  • Put a small amount of paint on a paper plate or scrap of card board. Use the foam roller or foam brush to paint on the fabric. I still can’t decide which tool I like better but the stencil spray is so good that if you use the brush you can actually brush it and not just press it down.
  • Peel the stencil off while still wet. Allow to dry.
